Group to build N. Pole home

Posted: Wednesday, October 17, 2001

NORTH POLE - Ground was broken Tuesday at the first Habitat for Humanity home site in North Pole.

"It's a beautiful start," said Richard Green, president of the Greater Fairbanks Area Habitat for Humanity.

The local Habitat organization, currently completing its third house in Fairbanks, just purchased a city lot in North Pole with funds from six companies - Alyeska Pipeline Service Co., BP Alaska, Petro Star, Phillips Alaska, Tesoro and Williams Alaska.

Habitat Office Manager Sara Madden hopes to see a house on the new property within a year. She expects to begin accepting applications for the project in February or March.
